R Lalique Perfume Bottles

Lalique Perfume Bottles on Sunday 13th November – National Glass Collectors Fair

You will enjoy this if you are interested in Lalique perfume bottles, René Lalique glass, motorbikes, or just a random Sunday outing next weekend.

We would love to see you there. B92 0ED if you are using Sat Nav. The fair adjoins the Motorcycle Museum, Bickenhill, Solihull. Find us at Stand 34 in Hall 2, two tables down from our former position.

In the dark all cats are grey

We are informed that this is a French saying that has something to do with… well, with what happens when the lights are out.

Rene Lalique

René was unbelievably productive, also an inventive and imaginative genius.

It should therefore come as no surprise to discover that the names he chose for his designs frequently contained sub-text.

Can you imagine receiving a gift of chocolates in a box like this? Now you really know how important you are to the gift giver.

René  called this design ‘Georgette’, the name of his youngest daughter. A personal touch to an already wonderful object.

Dans La Nuit

When the bottle is rotated bright points of light shine out of a dark blue night sky. What elegance. What technical brilliance.

What to call it? René chooses a phrase with meaningful sub-text.

“Dans La Nuit”

“In the dark all cats are grey”
